Cameron Marcom and Chelsey Ormsby of Fort Wayne, Indiana are facing charges for allegedly starving a young dog to death. The dog, which was given the name of "Tito," was locked inside a bedroom by the couple who left him there to die.
Tito was the last of the litter that was born at the couple's residence and when he did not sell, they decided to stop feeding him. The couple admitted to authorities that they did not like the dog and heard his cries, barks and scratches as he slowly withered away, locked in the bedroom. Sadly, when police arrived at the residence to serve arrest warrants for a different matter they arrived too late. Upon further inspection of the house, they found Tito's body locked in the room beneath a baby's bassinet. The officers noted that the room was covered in feces and the room was torn apart by the frantic hungry dog before he died.
Now Marcum and Ormsby are facing charges for torturing or mutilating an animal, cruelty to an animal and harboring a non-immunized dog.
